HARVEST FESTIVAL. ALL SAINTS' CHURCH, TATURA. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 16 March 1894
HARVEST FESTIVAL, -:0: ALL SAINTS' CHURCH, TATURA. One of the chief events in the calendar of Anglican country clhurches is the anr.ual harvest thanksgiving, and the Church of England made special pre parations for this festival, which took place on WVednesday evening last. The clergyman (Rev J. T. Bate), the ladies of the congregation, and others, had been most assiduous in their labours in con nectioni with the decorations and general arrangements, and the choir (under the conductorship of' the organist, Mr Adams) spared no time or energy in rehearsing the special music chosen for the occasion. It is therefore needless to say that the service was one of the most enjoyable ever held in Tatura. All Tuesday afternoon and evening and throughout Wednesday loads of fruit, vegetable produce, flowers and greenery were arriving at the church, and being placed in the positions most suitable for them. The chancel, which has lately been considerably altered, offered special facilities for dec...
A Story With a Moral. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 16 March 1894
A Story With a Moral. The story has reached as of an Itallan nobleman who at the altar refused to marry a young English heiless because her bridal dress was trimmed with the dead bodies of white doves. The tale is good enough to be true, but unfortunately such stories nre not always true, and the use of birds for. orna menting the person is not wholly dispensed with. Ornithologists, however, assure us that the decided progress already made by the press in ureating public sentiment against this cruelty has largely increased the song birds at the Northern nesting haunts. Any woman who pestiast in the use of real birds and bird's wings should be socially ostracised. Let her lay aside her prayer-book and learn mercy and grace, and to be faithful to her natural obligations.

The other day at Cannes the editor of the scientiflo French journal waited on iod Majesty with the rcquest that he wouli contribute eome articles connected with his dominion, " Cer tainly," replied the Emperor, " but what rate of pay do you give?" The man of letters, though a little eurprismd, having named what he was in the habit of giving, Dom Pedro added, smiling : " Ye, that will do very well. You see I would gladly write for nothing, but I am not at liberty to do so, ae ever sinceI began writinlg I havegiven every penny I have earned by my brain to an orphan asylum in my capital." Office boy (to editor): " Dare is a big bloke out in the udder room wida gun in his pants, what says he wants ter interview yer."
